Insider Tip: You’d be forgiven for driving right by Davis Café: after all, the only identifying characteristic of the two-floor building on Decatur Street with boarded-up windows is a small, sun-weathered sign hanging at one end of the property. Once inside, though, you can be sure you’re in the right place when someone hands you a photocopied paper menu of daily soul food specials, including pork chops smothered in a golden gravy studded with large strips of yellow onion and sweet-and-sour braised hearty greens. If you’ve got just enough room for a taste of dessert, don’t worry: Davis Café offers two-bite miniature sweet potato pies to round out your meal. Lunch is served until three, but don’t go too late, as a lot of these dishes take a long time to cook, and they do start to run out of things as the rush comes through.
